about this item

In 18 papers from a 2013 conference at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, classicists explore how ancient Greek historians thought and wrote about the future. They cover future times and the poetics of Greek historiography, temporalities of the future and the times of historical action, and toward the modern future of Greek times. Among their topics are knowing future time in Xenophon's Anabasis, the future and the logic of closure in Greek historiography, fading into the future: visibility and legibility in Thucydides' History, horoscope of empires: future ruins from Thucydides to Macaulay, and the Western futures of ancient history.
